. that's the fiscal cliff. we reach the brink in two days. let's go live now to dana bash on capitol hill. because of news of a setback. dana, what do we know? >> that's right. we got this word from democratic sources about a half an hour ago. maybe a little bit more. that they consider a major setback to be going on right now. a poison pill, something that the republicans offered last night and democrats rejected today. it's called technically chain cpi, the buzz word for it. what it means for real people and real terms, would be that social security recipients would see smaller checks on a monthly basis and that's why democrats are saying that this is a nonstarter. the president did propose this to the house speakers as part of a larger deal. he even talked about it again this morning on nbc, the president. but democrats are saying that they simply do not see this in this miner, smaller mini deal. they don't want to deal with the entitlement issue at all until a later date when they can deal with it in a broad sense. here's an example of what we heard a half hour ago from the republican

. dana bash joins us now from capitol hill. chief white house correspondent jessica yellin on the north lawn tonight. dana, i'll start with you. you listened to big talk on the intro. today was finger pointing and political chicken, but both sides will be talking to each other tomorrow instead of at each other. what is the latest on that? >> that's right, they're going to all be going to the white house. when i say all, i mean the top four congressional leaders, democrats and republicans, to sit down with the president. i'm told by a senior democratic source here in the senate that the expectation is if they can't figure out a path forward over the next three days in this meeting tomorrow, a way to actually pass something to avertthe fiscal cliff, then it is very likely, almost definite, that we will go over the cliff. i have to tell you that sources in both parties think that's the likelihood at this point anyway, but this meeting tomorrow is absolutely going to be crucial. and what the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell who you just heard from there, what he's saying he hopes to

been negotiating with. dana bash is doing some digging, so does david gergen and the rest of our political insiders. you know, i can save you 15% today if you open up a charge card account with us. >> you just read my mind. >> announcer: just one little piece of information and they can open bogus accounts, stealing your credit, your money and ruining your reputation. that's why you need lifelock to relentlessly protect what matters most... [beeping...] helping stop crooks before your identity is attacked. and now you can have the most comprehensive identity theft protection available today... lifelock ultimate. so for protection you just can't get anywhere else, get lifelock ultimate. >> i didn't know how serious identity theft was until i lost my credit and eventually i lost my home. >> announcer: credit monitoring is not enough, because it tells you after the fact, sometimes as much as 30 days later. with lifelock, as soon as our network spots a threat to your identity, you'll get a proactive risk alert, protecting you before you become a victim. >> identity theft was a huge,

, they can vote no. >> we're following the last-minute drama to avoid anything bad happening here. dana bash is covering the urgent talks in washington. ali velshi gives us the bottom li line. and alison kosik is on wall street watching how worried investors are reacting this hour. dana, we want to begin with you. we are hearing there might have been some progress overnight. >> a lot more optimism being expressed from sources in both parties. mitch mcconnell who the prime negotiator on the republican side just moments ago told reporters he spoke to the vice president, who is the prime negotiator now on the democrat side. so not totally all night, but they were up pretty late and early into the morning going back and forth making what again several sources say was significant progress. again, hate to say it, i have seen that movie before. i know you have too in covering similar negotiations like this. this is really, really been a roller coaster with people feeling optimistic and suddenly we hear things hit a snag. as you said, 14 hours to go. there's nothing like a deadline that really pushe

, if any, they will have to vote on. a lot of moving pieces and a lot of digging for cnn's dana bash. i understand there were no decisions out of the call. do we have any sense what fellow republicans are telling speaker boehner? how likely are we going to see a vote before going over the cliff? >> it's up in the air. i'm told it is in part why house republicans didn't make a decision whether to bring the house back or when to do it. the ball is really in the senate's court, specifically with senate democrats. that changed big time since a couple of weeks ago. at this point what senate democrats are trying to figure out is whether or not they can find enough republicans to cross party lines for what the president proposed right before he left for hawaii which is a scale back, focusing on tax cuts and saying what he campaigned on during the entire campaign which is only keeping tax cuts in place for those under $250,000. it is a big ask to try to get -- by our calculation ten senate republicans to cross over. they think with the deadline they are up against it will be hard to go home and

, what we want to do now is go over to capitol hill and talk to dana bash just a little bit because as we know, when these big deals among leadership get announced, there is still the active job of selling it to the rank and file, both the democrats and the republicans, and, dana, i'll ask you directly, are you hearing from anyone who is saying anything about whether this thing will fly in the house and the senate? >> reporter: obviously it will start in the senate, that's where we'll first see if the votes are there. as i was saying to wolf before, it is very hard to imagine at this late day and this late hour that harry reid and mitch mcconnell will agree to anything that won't get a majority of votes in both of their caucuses. but then the next move is obviously going to be the house, which is where i am right now. i'm with a republican member of the house, darrell issa. thank you for joining us. can you react to what the president said? >> i think i'm pleased there may be a deal, bring some certainty to the american people. i'm disappointed that the president took the eve of what migh

of digging tonight for cnn's dana bash. i know we don't have any decisions out of the call but do question have a sense what republicans are telling speaker boehner? how likely are we to see a vote in time to avoid going of the cliff? >> it is in part the reason why house republicans didn't make a decision to bring the house back or when to do it. the ball is in the senate's courts especially with senate democrats. that has changed big time since a few weeks ago. at this point what they are trying to figure out is whether or not they can find enough republicans to cross party lines for what the president proposed right before he left for hawaii which is a scaled-back bill focusing on tax cuts and on what he campaigned on which is only keeping the cuts in place for those making over $250,000. is it a big ask to get ten senate republicans to get them to cross over. >> so what more do we know then. it is still being crafted and that is part of the dance that's being done in these next few days which is exactly what do democrats have to put into this in order to lure those republicans if anyth
